Not worth the cost.

By JoeM_pa

from Pittsburgh, Pa

Comments about GE 7.8 Cu. Ft. Electric Dryer - White:

The dryer works OK, but I expected more. The dryer door kept popping open mid-cycle. We had it serviced twice, and it seems to be working better now, but I expected a simple part like the door latch to work 100% of the time.

MY OPINION OF THE GE DRYER

By Dr Judy

from Overland Park, KS

Comments about GE 7.8 Cu. Ft. Electric Dryer - White:

At first I was very disappointed with the dryer because it clumped all the clothes together at the end of the cycle on one side and they wrinkled. I had a repairman come and he adjusted it and I strongly urge you to change the design inside the drum because it tends to not fluff your clothes and even the repairman said that was the problem. It is better now that the repairman rebalanced it but still doesn't leave our clothes as pressed as the old dryer did. I DO like the de-wrinkle feature but you have to pull your clothes BEFORE the cycle completes to keep them from wrinkling. We are concerned that you no longer offer this dryer....is there a better one that replaced it???
